    Welfare and Religion in 21st Century Europe: Volume 1. Configuring the Connections2010 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is an overview of the relationship between welfare regimes and majority churches in eight selected countries in Europe. It shows that there is a connection between the evolution of the respective welfare regime and the religious organisation prevalent in the country studied. It also shows that a changing role of the welfare state and of religious institutions give religious organisations both an innovative role and a voice in the public debate on solidarity values.

    Religious Change in Northern Europe.: The Case of Sweden2004Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Detta utgör den sammanfattande raporten från projektet vid Vetenskapsrådet "Från statskyrka till fri folkkyrka". Rapporten visar på den komplexa förändringsbild som gäller Svenska kyrkan inför kyrka stat reformen år 2000 men också religiösa institutioner i stort. Den nordiska religiösa modellen karakteriseras av högt medlemskap och deltagande i riter men med lågt engagemang och gudstro. Detta visar på en individuell integritet i trosfrågor men med samtidigt behov av en kuturell relatering.

    Religiös förändring i norra Europa: en studie av Sverige : "från statskyrka till fri folkkyrka" : slutrapport2004Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Detta är den svenska slutrapporten från projektet Från statskyrka till fri folkkyrka vid Vetenskapsrådet. Slurapporten visar på den komplexa situation som de nordiska folkkyrkorna står inför, med den Svenska kyrkan som exempel. Religionen privatiseras samtidigt som intresset att använda sig av kyrkans riter ligger högt. Detta tyder på en spesifikt nordisk paradox.

    År 1997 antogs projektet ”Från statskyrka till fri folkkyrka” av det svenska Vetenskapsrådet. Tretton självständiga delstudier har ur olika synvinklar belyst religiösa och sociala förändringsprocesser i Sverige från mitten av 1800-talet fram till idag. I denna slutrapport bearbetas och vidareutvecklas resultaten, insatta i ett sammanhang av aktuell religions- och samhällsvetenskaplig debatt.

    Det speciella i den svenska religiösa situationen har att göra med den tidigare starka integrationen mellan kyrka och stat. Successivt har relationen lösts upp, fram till separationen år 2000. Rapporten visar att religionen inte har spelat ut sin roll i det senmoderna samhället, utan förändras på sätt som tidigare forskning inte förutsett. I det globala tjänstesamhällets Sverige är människors trosliv starkt privatiserat, samtidigt som religionen på ett ibland överraskande sätt uppträder på den offentliga arenan. Religiösa institutioner och organisationer fungerar som existentiella och kollektiva resurser i sökandet efter livskvalitet och mening. Kyrkans auktoritet och legitimitet är inte längre kopplad till dess formella position, utan till dess upplevda värde för individ och samhälle.

    Nya sociala förhållanden öppnar i dag för kyrkan som social aktör, men också som samtalspartner i en dialog om samhällsutvecklingens riktning och mål.

    The Challenge of Religion: Colloquium on interdisciplinary research programmes2011Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Research within the area of interaction between religion, law and society has grown extensively during the last decade. There are now several programmes going on in Europe with the aim to investigate the place of religion within the private and public spheres of society.

    This collection of articles is the result of the first colloquium in Uppsala where researchers from the different Research Programmes around Europe have contributed. The initiative to the colloquium has come from The Impact of Religion: Challenges for Society, Law and Democracy, an Uppsala-based research programme running over ten years.

    An outline of the programme of the colloquium is enclosed in order to give an understanding of the scope of the meeting. The list of participants also illustrates the broad representation from different disciplines in the Faculties of Theology, Law and Social Sciences around Europe.

    Kvalitet i livslånga tjänsterelationer: Svenska kyrkan ur tjänsteteoretiskt och religionssociologiskt perspektiv2000Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to clarify the social mechanisms that affect people'srelationships with the Church of Sweden. Interest is primarily focused on the majorityof the Swedish population who belong to the Church of Sweden, but who rarely makeuse of its services. This aim is accomplished in two ways. Firstly through a study ofthe ways in which church members understand and evaluate their relationships to thechurch and the services provided by the church, which they have made use of.Secondly through applying and testing service theoretical concepts in the churchcontext, and relating this to sociological theory of religion. This is discussed on threelevels. On a societal macro level changes in religion are discussed as part of thegeneral changes from agricultural via industrial to a service society. On anorganisational mezzo level the Church of Sweden is analysed as a service-providingorganisation. The micro level is analysed through a qualitative interview study with29 strategically chosen individuals.

    The theoretical analysis and empirical results show that the relationship betweenindividuals and the Church of Sweden can be interpreted as a lifelong servicerelationship. The individual uses the services of the church on few, but from theperspective of the individual's lifetime, meaningful occasions. The perceived qualityin these service meetings interacts with the perceived quality in the lifelongrelationship with the church. Even the church relationship itself can be understood asa value creating service through the fact that it mediates relationships to collective andtranscendental values and thereby provides security and a sense of coherence.

    State and Religion in Sweden: Ambiguity Between Disestablishment and Religious Control.2011In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 119-135Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1850s Sweden has been moving from almost total unity between state and Church towards a religiously neutral and secular state. A major step was taken on 1 January 2000, when new legislation entailing a fundamental change in the relationship between religious groups and the state was introduced. It aimed to place the various faith communities in Sweden on an equal basis, while simultaneously maintaining continuity with respect to the Church of Sweden as the national majority church. These two ambiguous objectives show an inherent tension within the Church-state reform and indicate that the separation between the two is not complete. This article questions the limits of the Church-state reform. Can the present day Swedish state be regarded as secular and neutral in relation to the various religions? The analysis of legal and financial regulations controlling relations between the state and the different faith communities show that the separation between Church and state does not mean a total separation. Consequently the state is still not religiously neutral, but continues to control religion in different ways and retains a special close relationship with the former state church.

    Swedish public authorities’ official use of religion.2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Church and state formally separated in Sweden 1st January 2000. However, their relationships are complex and ambiguous, illustrated by the presence of the Church of Sweden and its involvement in activities within several public institutions, and public authorities’ official use of religion in certain contexts. State institutions are officially religiously neutral, although in praxis many have special links and organized cooperation with the former state church. The aim of this paper is to scrutinize Swedish public authorities’ official use of religion in a selection of contexts at national level; at the yearly opening of parliament, at official celebrations or commemorations, existence of religious rhetoric in official speeches by the prime minister and the king, presence of public authorities’ representatives in religious rituals and ceremonies. The study focuses these contexts in three selected years 1988, 1998, 2008, in order to analyse possible change over time.

    Values expressing unity in diversity.: A study of the complex relation between majority cultures and minority religions across Europe.2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The results from the European Commission sixth Framework Programme project called ‘Welfare and Religion in Europe. Transitions related to Religion, Minorities and Gender’ will be discussed in relation to both methodology and findings. The understanding that values expressing unity in diversity is easier to find in the Nordic countries will be discussed together with the complex relation between majority cultures and minority religions across Europe. Different roles of the states are following a north-south divide while different definitions of minorities on the whole are following an east-west divide of Europe. Women dominate in all sectors but differently in different parts of Europe. An important challenge facing national welfare states today is how to maintain the bonds of solidarity in an increasingly diverse society. The question which is furthered to The Impact of Religion-Program in Uppsala is: In what ways do majority and minority welfare providers understand social cohesion and how is it implemented in their work.

    Varför är det så stora skillnader i konfirmationens popularitet i de nordiska länderna?2010In: Mellom pietisme og pluralitet. Konfirmasjonsarbeid i fire nordiske land i empirisk perspektiv. / [ed] Krupka, Bernd and Reite, Ingrid, Oslo: IKO-forlaget , 2010, 1Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Konfirmandarbetet är de nordiska folkkyrkornas mest omfattande kontaktyta med den majoritet av befolkningen som tillhör respektive kyrka. Flertalet av kyrkomedlemmarna har sin mest fördjupade kontakt med kyrkan, sett i hela deras livsperspektiv, just under konfirmationstiden. När deltagandet i konfirmandarbetet minskar är det därför en fråga som inte bara berör konfirmandarbetet utan också befolkningsmajoritetens religiösa orientering och kyrkornas förankring i befolkningen och i samhället i stort. Det är därför viktigt, såväl för den religionsvetenskapliga forskningen som för kyrkorna, att analysera de bakomliggande orsakerna till minskat deltagande. Det är också viktigt att analysera möjliga konsekvenser av det minskande deltagandet. Vad innebär det för samhället att allt färre ungdomar konfirmeras? Påverkar det samhällets social kapital eller utvecklingen av kollektiva värderingar? Vidare är det ur ett religionsvetenskapligt perspektiv viktigt att sätta in förändringen av konfirmationsdeltagande i det större sammanhang som gäller förståelsen av religionens och kyrkornas plats i dagens samhälle.
